A$AP Rocky Addresses "Long.Live.A$AP" Leak & A$AP Mob Success

A$AP Rocky opines on his debut album's leak, as well as his crew's individual shine.

While it's no secret that A$AP Rocky's debut album Long.Live.A$AP has leaked, the young emcee is taking a positive approach to the matter.

"I've been waiting for people to hear this music for so damn long," admitted Rocky in an interview with Hot 97's Miss Info. "Of course I've gotta be a businessman, but before anything I'm an artist. The album leaked, and I'ma leave it up to my dependable label, which I rely on to fix all that. That's the business aspect. I made my art, y'all love it, and that's all I care about, and I just wanna thank everybody who was anticipating this."

Additionally, Rocky addressed his A$AP crew's individual success.

"That's what I wanted from the jump," explained the Harlem rapper. "I wanted everybody to shine individually. I just wanted it to be organic. We all came up together, and everybody had individual talent. It's not just me. Anybody could tell you, walking up and down these streets... everybody always fucked with us because there was always something about us that was interesting."

      If Kreayshawn and Chief Keef had Nicki's budget I would agree, but Souljah Boy has the championship belt.

      Have you actually listened to the album? If you did then you will realize how good it is and that people will buy that shit regardless if it leaked early. If its good people will buy it regardless. Personally I think ASAP is better than Kendrick. He is much more versatile and he can appeal to a broader group of people not just backpackers stuck in the 90's.

  • kibakone

    I am african i dont feel offended by this . and the album is dope as fuuuck

  • Anonymous

    LOL...this leaked an entire month before its release date....DAMN

  • Confused Reader

    That kind of ignorance is unacceptable ASAP. Speaking as if Africa is a country is foolish and acting like "African" girls are just what you see on TV is just mind boggling. I realize the whole igant thing is cool or whatever but if you want suitability in this here game - step up your knowledge. Don't bring first world ignorance to an international level if you ain't ready to play. We laughing at you son. Ignorance is to not know. Stupidity is having no desire to know. You stupid kid.

    • lol clowns, chug troll gristle

      yall still got dicks up yer butts? thought so. who really cares?

      NO it does not. It means the kid was somewhat ignorant, with phased vision of anything outside the united states. Traveling has broadened his mind. It's allowed him to make his own vision of the world. Now he sees how rewarding it is to get off your ass and get out and see shit. An attitude which I commend to a fair few people either sides of the Atlantic.

    • Confused Reader

      @Anon: Why shouldn't I take this serious? It's entertainment... yes, but this is an important culture to me and certain things need to be called out in order for balance and discussion. This is the second time I've ASAP being this ignorant (first was that interview with that white girl - kathy griffin or however you spell her name. talking about Bitches that he would fuck). Like it's cool, & all and if that's his image in general cool. his F*cking Problems single out and some of his music I kinda get the jig. I always say, interviews show a side of you most realistic to life and reality and by watching shows to me how small minded he is..

      I agree fuck off clown you niggas take this shit to serious.

    • H.Kohr

      Dude is totally right. Rocky just fooled himself. He told in the interview that when it comes to fashion his level of intelligence is that of a rocket scientist. the level of intelligence in general seems not that high. i think the main reason why he is so successful is his pretty face (no homo, that's what the girls say). lol

    • Confused Reader

      @Annon: Thank you for furthering proving my point. Enjoy your Sunday.

    album is boring as fuck anyway

  • trooth

    I really like ASAP Rocky but this album was not good at all. I like maybe 2-3 tracks. The beats are boring as hell. He does a pretty good job rapping. I like the one joint with clams casino. But overall i was really disappointed with this album. His mixtape was 10X better.

      I recognize a new kid when they have talent, Kendrick and BH for example. 90% of the rest of these dudes are corny as fuck and look like borderline homosexuals. I thought the gay androgynous shit was corny in the 80's when the new wave white kids did it and I think its just as corny now that little black kids are doing it

  • Themnewguy

    Good to see him relasin his new album, i've heard his mixtape a few weeks back and a couple of his songs on his new album,gotta say a$ap is dope and todays hip hop scene definitely needs guys like him and kendrick to show what kind of rap music should be and not those 2chainz,rick ross shit.although a$ap usualy raps about bitches,money and drugs i personaly don't have a problem with it cause its 10x better than other guys who rap bout it dude can rap and he's got some killer lyrics to boot. Wish the dude notin but the best o luck

    what success i cant even name one guy in his crew except that fat dude with the purple face is yams right?

  • Kay

    Asap aint selling no more than 80k first week....All that hype for nothing lol his music has no substance or universal appeal

    • hiphopdx

      thats because young money is super pop status. plus i heard the labels buy some of the albums so the artists doesnt look like an average ass muhfucka

    • Anonymous

      Everybody's album leaks ahead of time including top sellers like young money. The playing field is completely level in that respect, so do not try to excuse low numbers ahead of time because of leaking.

    • OK

      1.fuck a record sale good music is good music. 2.you have only heard his songs that hold no substance.so of course you think no substance cuz like most wana be hip-hop heads they hate on anything different. 3.this nigga travels the world sellin out shows cuz his music is fuckin dope 4.the niggaz album was leaked waaaaaaaaaaaay before its due date so of course he isnt guna skyrocket in record sales first week. 5.stop hatin on the new school cuz old school is why its here

  • Harlem wudup
